Sbi thousand eases in a year is the 
record of The Salvation Arrays 
llcdieal Work in the Muktipur Dis- 
pensary, Gu.erat. 1* may be ».d 
Siat that institution is situated in a 
very out-ol-the-way spo , but that 
is the very reason why the patients 
come in such numbers. This place is 
so far from any other medical wort 
that the people who otherwise would 
BO to no doctor, just using home re- 
mcdiM and spells, come here lo 
obtain treatment. Many of .the cases 
dealt with had first been made worse 
by the old-time means. 

The sufferings of the people are 01 
many kinds. Out of Bve cases ol 
snake lite, one died and four recov- 
ered; of three cases of septic anae- 
mia caused by the ansanilary meth- 
ods of the village midwives. One 
patient died. There were two at- 
tempted suicides: (a) had taken poi- 
son; (li) had cut his throat; he 
recovered. ■ , . „ 

The man who took the poison 
was a Brahmin priest bclongnig to a 
temple not far from tlic Dlil aisary. 
He ivas sent to The Army liy the 
police. It was found he had taken 
JSO crains oi opium, and so dclcr- 
rained was he to end l.is hie tha 
he h.id mixed il with oil, so that it 
micht assimilate more quicku 

In an effort to save the |)ricsts 
liic the pMplc of the MukW ur left 
their woik and took lurns -ii keep 
ill" him moving aboul. Eelorc he 
pmscd into a state 01 coma h nnile 
this stalcmcnf, "I h.ivc tried, I hate 
worked, I have soucHt to Tiiid |icacc 
to mv SQUI, bnt 1 Cannot; I am Just 
tired of liic." 

Oppnrtunitics fre<iucntly occur 
for hclpiiig the people in in-iltcrs 
pertaining lo llie soul. Only a ^ort 
time ago thcOdiccrs were nulled to 
spoal: in the high-caste quarter oI -i 
villag-e in the ncighbourliood llie 
people sent their fharry for tlic bal 
vationisls, who, when they got there, 
found about three hundred retdv to 
hear their message. Tiicy bid a fine 
trnic. Tfie day bcfor... l~u Th .kors 
(Indian chiefs) from Kathiawarhad 
been to the Dispensary to m,1u":e 
about the God served by the Mukli- 
faui. They had been telling the 
people of the village of the great 
loving God otthe .Salvationists, and 
this had ledthem to send. 



AdvS« onljaYw r-. Total 
The splendid Self-Denial total of 
13,400 y?o (?M») no' <.°'J[.f' =J; 
lishes a new record lor that rar 
Eastern Territory, but repracnl! a 
very considetahle advance upon any- 
thing previously Mhieved. • 

Four years ago the total. raised 
by the Self-Denial Effort in the 
find of the Chrysanthcnjum was 
n? more than MS yen. The pre- 
sent total is. roughly speaking, an 
fnerease of nearly 1,400 yen upon 
last year, and shows not only how 
"magnificently our Japanese com- 
rades have thrown their energies 
into the campaign, hut the eagerness 
on their part 10 contribute to the 
spreading ol Salvation among othtr 
nations, since from the Sclf-Dcnial 
Fund The .'krmj's Missionary WorK 
is largely maintained. - 

We regret lo hear Ihat Adjutant 
Pickle. 6i Bracebridsc. is fuReiing 
from an attack' of . tonsilitis We 
trust, -however, that she will soon 
regain her usual health. 

Captain Trim has left the hospi- 
tal at Kingston, and though sllll in 
a weak condhion, hopes to rcEanj 
her sirenclh in a short while and 
be icadj for an appointment.

times did Joash smite Syria, but he ■ 
might have smitten it completely- If 
only the ting had gone on smmng, 
his kingdom might have been freed 
from the Syrian yoke.

one enters, upon a vast ex- 
pa.nse oi rolling prziiie and 
passes through immense 
wheat fields^ which, viewed from the 
window of the railway car, appear 
to extend to the horizon. If the sea- 
son of the year is just previous to 
the harvest, the traveller, as he looks 
out upon the ripening ^rain, comes 
(0 the conclusion that Winnijicg^has. 
been aptly termed "The Gateway, of

Twenty-one years ago, Eeeina, the 
Ctpital of 'Saskatchewan— now .a

ibont fifty tliOuSin*!— was a -can-

1S95 ihe population was in ihc vlcin- 
]1y of fifteen hundred. . Scvcrfll 
religious denominations h>id already 
becomp miorc or less established 
there, but, despite this fdct, a warm 
A^elcome was extended to The Army 
by those in authority in the town, 
and by the public generally. 

Captain Isaacson and Lieutenant 
McGcc, two women OfRccrs, had the 
hotiotir of commencing DpGration.s 
and, from thM Lime forward, The

In Ihc course of time a more .com-

I'lttcc was secured, situated over the 
Morki of the "Daily Standard." 

Some five years after the work was 

EUrtcd the town passed through a

An Exeter Corps Cadet, wbo lives 
four miles from tbe Corps, was r^ 
purine home froca a meeting by 
jtrain in a carriage with a number of 
other girts about her ov.-n age who 
lud been to the Hippadrome. One 
of the girls began to speak disparage 
io^ of religion. 

« The Corps Cadet, after this had 
Eone on for a little wh[Ie, feJt that 
bere iras an opportuoit}* for her to 
■witness tor God, and quietly but 
frmly declared that she was hap- 
pier than any one of the party, 
thoofb they bad b«en to a music 
hall And she to a prayer meeting. 

After speaking to tbe company in 
f:eneral, she addressed herself par- 
ticularlj to the girl who had been 
feoffing, and warned her that the 
time wonld surely cotne vhen she 
fV'Oiild realise her need of the Salva- 
tiili'a of God. 

The girl to whom the Corps Cadet 
thus spolce died very ^udd^nly only 
a fortnight later; and from her death 
bed sent. a. message to our comrade 
thanking her for dealing, so ^ith- 
fuQr Irish her in the ratlK'ay car-

that occasioii liad led her to give 
hecseif to God. and that. conH-

death.

CLOCK STRUCK TWELVE 
How the Self-Denial RcsuItB WcfC 

Made Known at Halifax I. 
- On Wednesday, May 24lh, we had 
the wind-up of the Self-Denial Ef- 
fort. Ensign Tutte read out the 
amounts that had been collected, 
amid much applause for the work- 
ers. The amounts were made known 
by means of a huge clock on the 
starboard side of the Hall. The 
small hand signified the tarfiet and 
pointed to half-past siit. Each hour 
represented $100, so the target was 
$650. The laree hand denoted the 
amount . realized. As the total 
amounts were called out, the large 
hand slowly revolved until txvelve 
was reached, -which, of course, 
meant that we had collected ^^1,200. 
This caused great rejoicing'. 

CakcE and ice cream were then 
served gratuitously, thanks to the 
pcnerosity of a Halifax milk firm. 
The glorious Gospel is being preach- 
ed to cood crowds in tlic open-air. —

CONDUCT SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN IN THE SILVER CITY— 

LARGE CROWDS— MUCH ENtHUSlASM "' 

AT;S.30 p.ni. on Friday, Nfay 
Z6th, tht Territorial Male 
Choir and Oixhestra, ac-- 
compeinielJ by Lieiit.-Col- 
oncls Smceton aod Chand' 
ler, started on their first lortg trip, 
covering six' hundred and/ si.xty 
mites, and viatting six Corps. 

By morninj; light North Bay had 
been reached. This town is the 
■chaniiiigf'point for engine and crew 
— the Temiskaminff andNbw'On- 
tarip Kaitway tafcirjg charge of the 
road north of North Bay. The 
country^ through which this line 
pasRcs is one of 'nature's treasure' 
.store.'v, and is noted for its agricul- ■' 
tural possibilities^ mineral wealth.^ 
and unsurpassed attraction for 
tourists. 

Tcmagami is the first place of 
consequence, and is the gatev^-ay to 
the beautiful tourist eountry on 
Lake T-;magami. Picture a lake of 
crystal water, so varied in its outline 
that its shores CKteod almost two 
thousand miins, studded with more 
than a 'thousand islands, surround 
this with innumerable smaller lakes 
and streams,- place the whole in the 
centre of a 1 ,400,0rO-ficres forest re- 
serve of pine, and you have Tema- 
gami. 

Litllb does one realize, when pass- 
ing through New Ontario, the 
wcaltli, in silver, tumberf and farm 
produce that has been, and is yet to 
be, taken from this new-found land. 

filially, Cobalt -was reached, a 
solid station is the first sight the 
visitor se^ ; one side of ivhich a 
huEc lake can he seen partly drain- 
ed, as it "is anticipated a large 
amount of silver is lying at the bot- 
tom'. Overhead is noticed lai-gecar: 
ricrs, ladcned with ore, being trans- 
ferred from the min'e to the separat- 
ing t^OllSl^^. On theotber side of the 
station ilig ■' toiwn . 6i -Cobalt is 
situated, \/5tS'^^ Its' cosmopolitan in- 
habitants.!, " :.; 

A substantial:: dinner was pro- 
vided in The Salvation Army Citadel" 
for the party, after' which an open7 
air service'Was hctd. 

That the citizens of Cobalt appre- 
ciate good music was demonstrated 
in 1 twofold manner in the Citadel 
at 8 p-m. First, by the assemblage 
of a good crowd; secondly, by the 
hearty ahd spontanetHls apptiuseat ■ 
the close of each item. Rev, A.Cou- ■ 
mans (BapRst) occupied the chair, 
and spoke in" glowing terms of The 
Artnv's work. Said he: "I admire ' 
the ^-ay The Salvation Army opens 
a musical festival, and I like to hear 
the ringing tcstiifiony of saj'ing they 
'are goiug all the way.'" 

Lieut.-Cdloncl Chandler, oh be- 
half of the Commissioner, during 
the service, promoted Lieutenant 
Bird to the rank of Captain. 

A good congregation gathered at 
the Baptist Church for the Sunday 
moVnitig service. The soulful sing- 
ing of the Brigade and the siirnnff 
testimony of Ensign Hodgson 
brought before the people the sweet 
friendship that is enjoyed through 
the Salvation of Jesus Christ. Col- 
onel Chi.ndtLr>. addres!> was fttll oi 
pointed^ ilhi^lntions jud good 
thoiight, rapt attention wis giien, 
and much blessing received 

The commodious Town HatI was 
filled fur thu 'Service of Praise" 
Among the uuUiber pf {sent va9 His 



ficers of The Salvation Army", and 
felt it a great honour to preside." 

The Male Choir and Orchestra 
had, by this. time, won golden opin- 
ions from the citizens, and their 
united eliTort brought much com- 
ment and apprcciatEon. One vva£ 
litard to say, "that the hatiriony of 
ihc Male Cholr^s Ringing had not 
been equalled in Cobalt for . many 
years past." 

Hsch minister arranged for their 
service to close at 7.45 p.m., hence 
they, with their respective congre- 
gations were present at the final ser- 
vice, when the Town Hall was pack- 
ed, and extra chairs bad to be 
brought in. 

A wave of blessing swept over the 
con^egation, as they sang lustily 
Fiich songs as "When the Roll Is 
Called Up Yonder" and "You Can 
Telt Out -the Sweet Story." The last 
chorus went with a swing, and is 
swe4*ping its way around the town, 
through the singing of it by the 
Songsters. 

I.icut.-Colonel Smeet'on arid En- 
sign Sitchie gave good counsel" to 
the audience, -lellirig'in nO uncertain 
sound the defrnite work that has 
been done in their hearty, and the 
keeping power of Cod. 

The Divisional Commander men- 
tiolied the anniversary of the sink- 
ing of Ih'e "Empress of Ireland" as 
a closing thought to his address. 

Great credit is due to Captain Bfrfl 
and her assistant for the splendid 
arrangements made.

SIDELIGHTS ON THE TOUR 

Captain MeLcod, of the O'Brien 
Mine, arranged for several members 
of the party to go over the mine. 

At each open-air service large 
crowds gathered, and gave freely of

r THE CIGARETTE PERIL 

THE great incrci-se of Cig- 
arette -!>ni&k]jig among the 
schoo]bo>5 on the Nutth 
American Continent is cans 
ing- much alirm to those 
who are concerned about the wel- 
fare of the ftjiure generation 

Fvery observing teacher," Sd>s 
the "Sunday bchool Tim«s/ "know3 
thJt the Cigarette more thjn any 
half dozen, other causes ty respon- 
sible for the boys' dropping out of 
school. The boy who smokes is un- 
able to co'ncentrate his nerve force. 
He cannot stand the nerve strain 
connected with the close application 
of tbe mind. He becomes nervous 
and rcSilesSi and soon he loses his 
interest.in . books . altogether. He 
begins to drop, behind, in his class 
worl^. and .finally. be drops, out .of 
school. '.This is' the history, concise- 
ly stated^ of the average yottthful 
smokerl'. . , .r 

'The, cigarftte is chiefly, respon- 
sible,' loo, fnr Ihe fact, that boys are 
less accurate, and make more errors 
in their school work than, do the 
girls, and .why the number of errors 
increases ,^-With the age of the 

pupils."!,. .\.. . ... ; , . 

; JAPAN is A^yAKE 

JAPAN; appreciates the influence 
of-tobaccoKsaoking .upon the na« 
tional.Hfe.' OversiMteen years. ago 
a bill was intTiiduced into the House 
of Representatives in Japan prohi- 
biting -the. use i of tobacco in any 
form before tbe age of twenty years, 
^is bill, became a taw the same 
year. I How? Neomoto, tn present- 
ing the bill^'.said;— .■.: 

"Recently children in our public 
schools' have -come to smoke cheap 
imported -cigarettes/ -the conse- 
quences of which we-fcar will bring 
our country down to the miserable 
jcondilton , of . countries ''like- China 
and 'India, because -'tajbacco,'^ lika 
opium; contains narcotic --poisons 
which benumb the nervousv system, 
.weaken the mental power of our 
children addicted to smoking; and. 
thus to give, pointtoour national 
policy; we must strictly prohibit the 
smoking of tobacco by.chitdren and 
youngpeople. If we expect-to make 
this nation superior , to the nations 
of Europe and America) .we must 
not allow our youths in ^ coinmon 
schools who are to become fathers 
and mothers of -Our country- in the 
near futurelo smoke." •. _■ 

Japan- is awake to this peril I 

SOME STARTLING -PACTS 

ctlN'the year 1900 two billion six: 
'hun.{lred thousand cigarettes 
were. -made. In. the year 1913,- 
fiftecn-bjUion' eight hundred million 
cigaret'tes'werc made here; -an in- 
crease ol 700' per cent. This tre- 
mendous popularity, which 13 grow- 
ing: all the time, is possible only be- 




A Bnbah Submarine approaches a smack for a supply of fresh fisb 
(Sec Page 12) 



cause millions of American men 
have convinced themselves that 
cigarettes arc good for them." 

Thus wrote the President of the 
American Tobacco Company in a 
letter defending the cigarette, writ- 
ten to Henry Ford txvo year.'i ago, 
Since then nearly five biltions have 
been added to America's yearly cig- 
arette output, making an increase in 
fifteen years of over 900 per cent. 

Is this startling increase because 
men have convinced themselves that 
cigarettes are good for them, or be- 

'cause boys are not being defended 
against "the little white slaver?" ft 

,15 time for us to recognize the peril 
of ihe' cigarette, for the prevalent 
use oE tobacco by boys is doing as 

.much, -if not more, than alcohol, to 
lower (fie efficiency of the race. 



POPULATION FACTS 

IN 'Facts About Canada," an inter- 
esting little publication compiled 
,by Frank Yeigh, it is stated that 
.three-fourths of our population is 
British-bom. This term applies, of 
course, to all those born to- Canada, 
,the British Isles, and British pos- 
. sessions. 

, The total number of persons, of 
alien birth in Canada, according to 
the last census figures is 752,732, of 
.w^om 353^, or nearly 47 per cent., 
had acquired the rights of Canadian 
citizenship. It must be noted, how- 
. ever, ^ that over 300,000 Americans 
are included in the figures relating 
to the foreign-horn. 
' From the Continental countries 
;0f' Europe 404,000 have come to 
,theEe shores, and from Asia only 
.40,000. There are 1SS,000 Jews in 
.Canada; Montreal having 52,000; 
Toronto^ 32,000; and Winnipeg, 
15.000. 

The total estimated population is 
eight millions, -which is about two to 
a square mile. Compared with other 
.countries, Canada is very sparsely 
populated.. Great Britain has 471 to 
the square, mile; France, 190; and 
the United States, 25. So we have 
plenty of elbow room yet for all 
comers.

HEROIC TEACHERS 

iN'the city of Rheims, which is 
und'er^ constant bombardment' by 

' the Germans, a number of school 
tochers are still continuing to in- 
struct the youth of France. ^ The 
classrooms are underground, in the 

I immense champagne cellars. In pay>' 
ing' a tribute to these heroic teach- 
ers, the civil authorities of Rheims 
say:^- ' 

'.•'They have giveii proof of the 
greatest devotion' in assuring^ under 
conditions often dangerous, the edu- 

, catidnal.service in this city, which is 
iinceaisitigly bombarded, thus afford- 
ing to a.11 a fine example of civic 
eonrage. - They are sheltering^ -from 
tbe dangers or the streets more than 
13,000 children, and offering* them 
the posstbilify of contiHuingf their 
studi""." 



VALUE OF MISSIONS 

MISSIONS have been the means 
of establishing modern educa- 
tion (says Robert E. Speer in the 
"Sunday School Times"). 

Not only have the missionaries 
created and maintained tUeir own 
schools, hut-they have inspired and 
often actually organized and devel- 
oped schools and whole systems of 
education for Governments. In - 
India it was said o£ Carey by Dr. 
George Smith, that -'It was well that 
thus early iu schools, in. books and' 
tr.ict3. and in providing the literary 
forms and. apparatus of the vernacu- 
lar languages, Carey laid the founda* 
linn of the new national and^Im- 

Serial civilization. Wheu the- itime - 
ar the English came, the founda- 
tions T*ere at least above the 
ground." 

Missions ha^T discouraged war 
and strife and promoted order and 
pekce. "To be welcomed in the land 
of Cannibals," Said a Dutcli traveller 
in Sumatra, ''by children singing 
liymns, this indeed shows the peace- 
creating power of the Gosp.el." 

A DIVER'S WORK 

THE work of a diver in Ihei Bri- 
tish navy, is terribly dangerous 
and difficult (says an American 
journaUst). 

When leaks or shot-boTes are re- 
ported he goes overboard, dragging 
the thick hempen collision mat over 
the damaged plate, to enable his 
ship to limp home. 

Similarly, when a torpedo strikes 
a less vulnerable part he goes down 
to the rescue, and in patching tbe 
jagged holes caused by mines he has 
had a great value. In this case he 
may have to cold-rivet a plate— no 
easy job when a 13,0WVton battle- 
ship is rolling^and sucking against 
him. 

When a temporary repair has to. 
he improvised in deep water he takes 
his life in his hands. The least sUp 
or mTscalcubtion between heavy 
hull and twisting rope ladder means 
death. But all (nc same there is no 
lack of Britons for what is often a 
desperate and always a difficult and 
highty^skilled job. 

CONCRETE WORKERS' 
DISEASE 

CONCRETE disease, due to the 
c:^tensive handling of concrete or 
cement, is one of the additions to 
human ills brouj:rht by modern in 
dustry. It is an itching eruption on 
exposed parts of the hands arms, 
and breast, sometimes afTccimg also 
the bee, and arises from the action 
of the alkaline contents of the ce- 
ment, especially on skin already 
softened by water Rest for a fc^\ 
davs, with the use of zinc ointment 
or'a soothing liniment, is sufficient 
to remove the trouble It may be 
prewnteil bj smearing nich fat the 
.bkin likely to be affected, and wear- 
ing suitable cloth glom on -the

WHY IS THE SUN HOT? 

IF we could build up a solid column 
of ice from the earth to the sun, 
two miles and a half in diameter, 
S])3nning the intervening disuiice of 
mticty-three million miles, and lE 
the sun flioilld concentrate his en- 
tire power upon it, it would dissolve 
in a singtc second (according to a 

C-ilciiln-tion made by Prof Young) 
Lo produce this enormous amount 
of LeAt would rcqutf). the hourly 
burning of a Uyer of anthracite coal 
more than nineteen feet thick ovtr 
the entire surface of the sun If 
the sun were composed of sohd coal 
and we derived our heat from the 
burning of that coal, the ^un would 
burn out in less th^n five thousand 
years. Since the earth is millions oE 
years old the sun cannot be burn- 
ing. Its heat must be generated la 
some more persistent way 

The great physicist Helmholts 
was the Rrst to explain ^atisfactor* 
ily what keeps the sun hot. Ihe sun __ 
a not burning; it is heated to thc^ 
glowing point, like a piece ot white 
hot iron. Helmholtz found that if 
we suppose the sun to bt contract'^ 
ingby only 250 feet a year wewould ^ 
receive our present amount of heat. >, 
Ifi otlier words heat is being liter- 
ally squeezed out of the "sun Pro* 
f csso r Newco mb cs tima ted that,. 
when the squeeiing proce 1* con- - 
ttnued for about seven m n tM jears, 
tbe sun will be one-hatf present

A very thritline and poignant 
struation, in connection with the 
Irish outbreak, is created h^ the fact 
lliat' our Men's Shelter in Dublin 
was in the very midst of the heart- 
district of the disturbance — in the 
very hub of the cyclone. 

As a matter of fact, this historic 
house of ours is in the same street 
as Jacob's factory*, one of the huild- 
ings around which centred some of 
the sternest episodes of the sanguin- 
ary struggle. Knowing this, it will 
be understood how great was The- 
General's anxiety both as to this 
Army Institution and also the others 
whEeh, in the Irish capital, are 
charged with the well-being of the 
poor and the uFlifting of the sinning 
and unfortunate— atl anxiety, let it 
be said, which was especially shared 
by the Chief of the Staff and the 
heads of our Social Work, includJng 
Colonel Laurie^ Governor of the 
Men's City Colony. 

As it v.*as impossible, during the 
week of terror, which happily is now 
a thing of the past, to, get either into 
eomvnunication with or hear any- 
thing from our comrades in the be- 
leagured city. Colonel Laurie in- 
slrucied Major Lord by the -tele- 
graph to the North of Ireland, 
which was avaiTable, lo at once pro- 
ceed from Belfast to Dublin, and 
spare no effort to asccrtaiu the 
actual Slate of things. 

This, aided by raueh and appre- 
ciated kindness Otl the part of soms 
of the high of&cials, the Major was 
enabled to-do, and to the great joy 
and satisfaction of all concerned, 
iound our Officers there not only 
safe and well, and the buildings 
practically intact, but also, like the 
devoted Silvationists they are, up- 
holding The Army Standard by 
ministering to the starving women 
and children temporal Sustenance, 
and that sympathy and help which 
makes such aid doubly valuable. _ 

Adjutant Thompson, whi:> is In 
charge of the Shelter, together with 
his wife C^hey have two little chil- 
dren), had been and were nartieu- 
larly busy in this splendid '-.'Ork of 
lelief. They had immediately per- 
ceived the need, and quiekU- acted. 
Not only had the women and their 
little ones been gathered irto the 
Shelter, but the schoolroom adjoin- 
ing had been secured by the Adju- 
tant and turned Lo the S*mc excel- 
lent account. This welcome,' news 
Major Lord was ultimately able to 
convey lo London, where it evoked 
■feelings of deep gratitude to God. 
Subsequently the Major, subject 
to the wishes of Headquarters, re- 
turned to Dublin and, with the per- 
mission of the military authorities, 
procured 'a supply of provisions and 
got them promptly sent down at 
the same time as those provided by 
the powers now controlling . the 
area. ' 

It is gratifying to Icarti th&t the 
Slum OScers,^ alao, who am con- 
stantly operating in the slums which 
lie behind -the famous Sackville 
Stt-eet, have come through the or- 
deal unscathed Thc> hive won 
honoursj indeed by their brave suc- 
courjng of the poor <>ouls in need 
of It.
